Forum: movies Subject: Re: new video/audio player 'opt in' is live!

yah, i've heard some mixed results on android...

(one possibly nonideal thing is our new player uses the [video] html tag instead of [audio] tag for playback of audio (which means you see a black page, typically, but hear the audio -- which has confused some of our patrons!(understandably!)). when i raised it to the jwplayer folks, they said in testing, android was "even worse" with audio tag alternative.

i think it's a bit difficult to get all the android variants tested well and sorted out, since there are so many OS versions, screen sizes, and hardware installs to try (that's what i hear from the player folks).

not sure what we can do, but i'm noting it at least as a reported issue...
